Native American Issues

Self-governance, diversity and cultural competence, treaty rights, and the role of culture in community life are just a few of the unique issues facing Native American populations, which includes American Indians, Alaska Natives, and other Native Americans, such as Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders.

Other issues, such as substance abuse prevalence and trends, mental health issues, access to Federal grants, homelessness, and assessments of health care, tie into the experiences of Native Americans in distinctive ways. The Rockville Institute has the expertise in studying the needs of these special populations as well as the methodological experience to conduct comprehensive research.
